There’s nothing like a farrier visit to drive home the fact that the horses need grooming. Sure, I can look at them when I feed and say, “I should get after that mane”… but having a witness, who goes to a bunch of barns with which to compare, makes me take note.
I mean, it was bad enough that I didn’t have time to run out and pick their feet first, which I would normally do… sigh. But this poor farrier got unpicked feet, that just grown winter coat that is too hot on a fall day so all the horses are sweaty, too. Oh, and the flies. We had rain recently, then sun. So, now we have flies.
So, my horses were dirty, sweaty, smelly and drawing flies.
But, he didn’t care… or at least he didn’t let it show. And he trimmed well, quickly and fairly. The horses liked him. They are my best barometer.
